Slip away from the world to this rustic retreat on a private lake. Fifteen minutes from the charming town of Coldwater, you'll find privacy and solitude in this unique off-grid eco cabin, with a loft and plenty of space to put your feet up. Enjoy meals over an open fire and have your morning coffee on the fully screened-in porch while you watch the local wildlife, including otters, moose, deer, beavers and nesting swans. The perfect retreat for creative minds and solace-seekers.

The space
The cabin is small and cozy, with a bed in the loft and a futon in the main living space, below. The loft is accessed by a ladder. There is also a fold-down table in the living space for dining or working, and a second sitting area on the screened-in porch.

In tune with the full rustic experience, there is an outside cooking area with a propane burner and a firepit. The outhouse is quite spacious and has a composting toilet.

Please be aware that due to the cabin's remote nature, there is a short hike through the forest to reach it, including a climb up a hill. Backpacks or other luggage that can be easily carried are recommended!

I’m Hannah! I’ve travelled extensively, lived in Germany with my German husband, and we now make our home in a ramshackle cabin in the Canadian wilderness. I write books and love history, nature, and reading.

We want our guests to have their peace and quiet, and hope for the same in return! But we are always available if there are any issues or questions.
